Split Hem Dolman Tunic + Dress | Adult Size S0c-L1c | Beginner Level Sewing Pattern



This Adult Split Hem Dolman Tunic and Dress PDF Sewing Pattern includes 3/4 sleeves, long sleeves, tunic length, dress length, neckband and a neck funnel options.

This loose fitting dolman can be made with soft and drapey or sturdy knit fabrics.

Use drapey knit fabric to create a soft silhouette and use your sturdy knit fabric for a boxy silhouette. Just make sure your fabric has the right amount of stretch (2-way* or 4-way stretch, minimum 35% stretch across grain).

You can use your regular sewing machine or a combination of a serger (overlock) and sewing machine.

This pattern includes 1/4" seam allowance everywhere except the side seam, which is 1/2" because the seam allowance is pressed open and top-stitched.

The hem on this pdf pattern is 1" for the sleeves and 2" for the shirt front and back.

Units are in inches.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a digital product, not a finished garment, and cannot be returned/refunded.  This is a beginner level PDF sewing pattern for knit fabrics.
